BTS’s Jin Joins Suga, Blackpink’s Lisa And Rosé And Psy In A Huge Sales Win In Canada

Dua Lipa and Elton John claim the bestselling hit in Canada on the current edition of the Canadian Digital Song Sales chart, Billboard’s look at which tunes were actually purchased by the most people in the nation. The pair’s global hit “Cold Heart (Pnau Remix)” runs the show again, while new singles by the likes of Post Malone and The Weeknd (“One Right Now,” No. 5) and Luke Combs (“Doin’ This,” No. 10) launch inside the top 10. Between those two cuts, a member of the biggest band in the K-pop space also breaks into the highest tier, and by doing so, he makes history.

Jin’s new single “Yours” kicks off its time on the Canadian Digital Song Sales chart at No. 8, quickly becoming a huge win in the market. The BTS performer is celebrating as just the second member of the septet to reach the top 10 on the purchase-only list, and when looking at all South Korean solo musicians, he’s just the fifth name to appear somewhere between Nos. 1 and 10.

Psy is the only South Korean solo artist to reach the top 10 on the Canadian Digital Song Sales chart more than once. He topped the tally back in 2012 with his breakout smash “Gangnam Style,” which spent an incredible eight weeks in charge of the list. He followed that success up with another the next year, as “Gentleman” peaked at No. 4.

Fellow BTS member Suga became the first of the seven singers in the group to land a top 10 sales smash in Canada when his single “Daechwita” rose all the way to No. 9. He released the tune under another name, Agust D, which he uses sometimes when working on his solo material (though not always). 

Earlier this year, two members of the band Blackpink also broke into the top 10 on the Canadian Digital Song Sales chart with their debut solo releases. First up was Rosé, whose first single on her own “On the Ground” also peaked at No. 9. At the time, she was the first solo female K-pop musician to collect a top 10 bestseller in the nation, and just the third musician from the genre to do so on their own. 

A few months later, fellow Blackpink star Lisa lifted slightly higher, as her debut solo single “Lalisa” peaked at No. 7.
